Colour is good, thanks. Love the door mat. :lol:

What's it like for comfort? I have a skinny Nuke Proof that gave me a lump in my right cheek for a week after I last used it.

I also have £20 left in my Paypal account or the stem in my sig. Any movement on price (it is torn, cough) or patriotic swapsies? 8)

So the black Easton stem doesn't rock your boat?

It's not carbon, but if you look on the site I linked to above, the writer claims it's lighter than their carbon stem. I have the original shim, so you can use it with the modern fatty bars or the retro slim.

Quote:
This top-of-the-range Easton aluminium alloy stem weighs less than the firm's EC90 carbon composite model. As an added bonus it is stiff, very stiff.

Quality is first rate, performance is first rate and the ease of fitting and quality of the instructions are, you guessed it, also first rate.

Everything is as it should be on a near-perfect stem, although we would like to see domed-head Allen bolts on the steerer clamp rather than the cap-head ones fitted as standard.

The price is a little high compared with the likes of the Hope, Syntace and Thomson offerings, but there is no mistaking that this is a remarkably light, high-performance stem.

Straight swap?

If that's what you're thinking, just be sure that you've read the full specs in my post here:

If that suits you, I'm happy to move this stem on. 8)
